A Roarin' Good Birthday

Happy, happy Monday!!!!  I have a little birthday card to share with you today that would be perfect for a kid's birthday.  Here it is:

As soon as I saw this fun sentiment from the Pink By Design Take the Cake set, I knew I needed to find a cute lion cutout ASAP. I wanted to use a cut I'd never used before, though, so I opted to use this lion from Lettering Delights' Zodiac SVG set. Isn't he adorable??? I just think he's perfect for this fun birthday greeting.

I used lots of layers of pop dots (the 1/16 inch thickness) to add dimension to my card. I also embossed the blue circle around the lion's head for some added texture. Here's a little your embossed pieces with watermark ink or ink in a slightly darker color than your paper to give the embossing a little added UMPH! Finally, I added a little doodling and some ribbon, and my little 5.5" square card was all done. I hope you like it!

I'm entering this in this challenge:
